The Ministry of Agriculture and Food has set up a Nutrient Management Line to provide information and resources on the Nutrient Management Act. The toll free number is 1-866-242-4460.
OMAF will be first on the farm under the nutrient management monitoring, complaint and enforcement protocol. The line will also log complaint calls to the Ministry. People calling the line must identify themselves and their location. Complaints will be referred to staff who will investigate the situation and make recommendations. If the situation is considered a threat to health or the environment such as a spill the item will be referred to the Ministry of Environment for investigation and possible prosecution.
The line will operate during business hours by OMAF staff. After hours calls will be forwarded to the 24/7 Spills Action Centre who will log the compliant and relay the information to OMAF immediately.
